I never get tired of Hong Kong. When in town, I like hitting the slopes on Wanchai,  the busy Central district and Sheung Wan for antiques along Cat Street and Hollywood road, independent shops along St. Francis Yard and Aberdeen and yes, have a suit made at Yuens. 
(Top: I just love the view of the harbor from the Sevva. Bottom: The Monocle Shop along St. Francis Yard)

Aside from the usual outlet shopping (which I am really not a big fan of) and sightseeing (usually for first timers), hit Yung Kee for its famous gourmet specialty-Roast Goose before cocktails at Sevva, Café Gray or Sugar at Tai Koo.
(Saturday brunch at Classified before hitting the antique shops downhill)

When in the island, walk! (I’m serious!). From Connaught road, a short walk will lead you to Hong Kong's very own Soho in the foothills of the Peak. I used to not  fancy steep climbs but I just need to lose some extra pounds from the roast goose I had the day before.   
I need two more packs of yakult and a plateful of dumplings or probably deep-fried won ton. On a brighter note, I got what I needed! 
Next stop, Art Basel!
